RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approval of the Coastal Parks Department to submit a grant project proposal to the Federal Economic Development Administration (EDA) under their Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) Disaster Recovery Program as authorized by Sections 209 and 703 of the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965. 
BACKGROUND
Under the Disaster Supplement the EDA will fund recovery costs of 80% of the total project costs for those projects that have proven substantial economic impacts to a local community/region.
DISCUSSION
Estimated recovery costs for the existing facilitieis at the I.B. Magee Park (Excluding I.B. Magee Park office covered under insurance claim) is roughly $3 Million dollars. Coastal Parks will be requesting funding in the amount of $2,400,000 and be responsible for the remaining $600K of the estimated recovery cost through local funds already made available through Commissioner Precinct 4 funding sources.

Also note worthy under this program the EDA is requesting the proposal project build in resiliency strategies in the reconstruction/recovery effort which allows for upgrading of facilities and infrastructure to mitigate for future storm events.

Further more with the most recent FEMA PA grant award notification and the Rebuild Texas grant award Coastal Parks has received a total $490K. Applying for this funding support, if awarded, the County potentially has just $110K needed to reach the full recovery costs of $3 Million.
